Liverpool's Suarez and Adam 'cracking' players - Villa's McLeish

Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish believes Kenny Dalglish has done a very good job since taking over at Liverpool.

The Scot has turned things around at Anfield after a rough trot and has put together a very talented squad which has been lauded by the boss of Sunday's opponents.

McLeish has in particular pointed out Luis Suarez and Charlie Adam and said he is hoping to make a similar impact at Villa as Dalglish has done with Liverpool.

"Kenny has done a terrific job. I think they have done some good business, spent a few bob on cracking players who make a difference like Suarez and Adam," he said.

"At the end of the day, these guys have got to perform and they have been performing for Kenny.

"But we absolutely relish these games and over the last couple of years my record is pretty good against the bigger clubs in the home games.

"I think I went 11 to 12 games as a manager undefeated in home games against the bigger teams when it wasn't expected.

"I've got to believe I can do something similar at Villa. The players have got to believe they can take points from the clubs above us as well."
